"Cable operators are putting pressure on telco competitors with high-speed internet services, forcing them to extend fiber deployments. This pressure will continue as DOCSIS deployments increase in 2017, pushing cable broadband speeds even higher and making legacy DSL connections less attractive for SMB customers."</P> Market Share Mon, 22 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Jason Blackwell 国内SMB IT市場 産業分野別予測、2017年~2021年 http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPJ41778917 <P>本調査レポートでは、2017年3月までのベンダー調査による製品情報、最新の経済状況を考慮して、国内SMB IT市場の2016年における実績値、および2017年~2021年の市場規模予測を従業員規模別、製品別、産業分野別に行っている。国内SMB IT市場は、PCなどの更新需要が回復していることからプラス成長を予測している。2018年から既存システム刷新、またはPC更新需要が中心となりIT支出の拡大を予測しているが、2020年以降はこれまでのIT支出の反動もあり、低成長を予測している。「ITサプライヤーは、国内SMB IT市場において、中長期的に拡大を持続させるためは、SMBの経営課題の解決に直結する提案を積極的に行い、企業にIT活用の有益性を理解してもらうことが今後さらに重要になる」とIDC Japan ITスペンディングのリサーチマネージャーである市村 仁は述べている。</P> Market Forecast Fri, 19 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Hitoshi Ichimura Exploring Consumer Adoption of Connected Vehicle Services http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=WC20170511 <P>This IDC Web Conference provides an overview of IDC's connected car research.

There were some glimmers of hope among the challenging results shared by Randall Stephenson, chairman and CEO, and John Stephens, CFO. Overall, net income closed at $3.5 billion versus $3.8 billion in 1Q16. A key takeaway from the earnings showed that consolidated revenue decreased for the first quarter ($39.4 billion) compared with a year ago ($40.5 billion). AT&T highlighted that a strong decrease in wireless equipment upgrades — largely smartphones — affected these top-line results. With the unpredictability of wireless handset sales, AT&T will cease to provide revenue guidance. </P> IDC Link Wed, 03 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Carrie MacGillivray, Courtney Munroe Xerox Re-Architects DocuShare for the SMB Market http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=lcUS42513317 <P>Xerox is making enterprise content management (ECM) and content workflow automation available to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) with the introduction of Xerox DocuShare Flex. The fully cloud-based SaaS solution was rebuilt from the ground up using open web and platform standards. </P><P>IDC believes that moving DocuShare to a more modern architecture makes good sense. In addition, a key part of Xerox's growth strategy is to achieve greater penetration into the SMB market via its partner network, and the move to a SaaS architecture makes the solution more accessible to both partners and smaller businesses. The solution also fits well with Xerox's recent launch of ConnectKey-enabled devices. Xerox's challenge will be with reaching outside of its existing partner network and installed base of Xerox devices. </P> IDC Link Tue, 02 May 2017 04:00:00 GMT Holly Muscolino, Allison Correia 2017年 国内SMB IT市場 ユーザー企業のIT支出動向調査 http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=JPJ41776117 <P>本調査レポートは、2017年2月に実施した「国内SMBユーザー調査」の結果に基づき、SMB(Small and Medium Business:中堅中小企業)におけるIT導入目的/課題、IT支出予算、「第3のプラットフォーム」など主要ソリューション利用動向、ベンダー利用動向に加えて、「東京オリンピック/パラリンピック」対応、「地方創生施策」の影響、「インバウンド需要」対応などのトピックスに対するIT支出への影響に関する分析/検証を行ったものである。</P><P>SMBでは、国内経済が不透明となっていることから、2017年度(会計年)のIT支出予算はほぼ横ばいに留め、慎重な姿勢をとる企業が依然として多い。しかし、多くのSMBで「セキュリティ対策」関連で重点的なIT支出を予定しており、特に「ID/アクセス管理強化」の優先順位が高まっている。加えて、経営課題として「売上拡大」を挙げる企業が最も多いが、そのほか、人材不足の深刻化によって経営課題として「業務プロセスの改善」を挙げる企業が増加している。これらの経営課題は、IT活用による効果を期待するSMBも多いことから、これらの分野でのIT支出の拡大が見込まれる。ソリューション面では、「モビリティ」「データアナリティクス」などの「第3のプラットフォーム」を活用して業績改善、業務効率化を模索するSMBが増加している。「SMBではITを利用した業務効率化、業績改善のニーズが高まっており、ITサプライヤーは「第3のプラットフォーム」を活用した積極的なソリューション提案がビジネス拡大に求められる」とIDC Japan ITスペンディングのリサーチマネージャーである市村 仁は述べている。</P> IDC Survey Tue, 25 Apr 2017 04:00:00 GMT Hitoshi Ichimura Verizon 1Q17 Earnings Performance: Rocky Start to 2017 http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=lcUS42504917 <P>On April 20, 2017, Verizon released its 1Q17 earnings report. The company reported revenue of $29.8 billion, a decline of 7.3% over 1Q16 revenue. The company's adjusted EPS has also declined YoY from $1.06 in 1Q16 to $0.95 in 1Q17. However, excluding revenue from the divested wireline properties and acquisitions (Telogis, Fleetmatics, and XO's fiber-optic network business), total revenue declined marginally by 4.5%. The good news: FiOS, IoT, and ad revenues reported growth in 1Q17 when compared with 1Q16. The bad news: the mature and competitive wireless sector is slowing down, and the wireline market still presents a challenge for Verizon.</P> IDC Link Tue, 25 Apr 2017 04:00:00 GMT Carrie MacGillivray, Courtney Munroe
